Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 430 than the BMW 230, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 230 and the BMW 430 in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 430 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 230, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW 230 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 430. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 230 and the BMW 430 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much slimmer than the BMW 430, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 230 is slightly shorter than the BMW 430, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 230 and the BMW 430 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 230 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 430, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 230 and the BMW 430.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 230 and the BMW 430. The BMW 230 has less cargo capacity than the BMW 430, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 230 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 430.
